Joint Integrity

Accountable flange management software is critical for a leak-free start-up, efficient production, process safety and major hazard avoidance.

Operators are under pressure to improve containment. Our digital Joint Integrity software helps you avoids process leaks that threaten installations, employee safety and the environment. Capturing high volumes of data, you can effortlessly control, validate, issue, track and index all project joints, resulting in quality assured flange management, that is safe and compliant.

Flange and Joint Management Challenges

 

Current flange management systems, such as spreadsheet-based solutions and those that rely on paper-based printouts and spreadsheets, are time-consuming and prone to error.  Current processes that rely on paper-based printouts and spreadsheets involve high manual intervention levels, which inevitably lead to errors causing safety issues, losses and delays.

Our joint management solution helps manage and monitor all these issues to push project plans forward.

Common joint and flange management related challenges include:

  • No consistency of procedures

  • Incorrect joint assembly 

  • Wrong materials used for the job

  • Inadequate tracking of certification of technicians

  • Inaccurate updates of work progress

  • Missing tags

  • Improper tightening methods

Digitalize Your Joint Integrity System

 

Early adoption of a robust digital joint integrity / flange management system enables a high degree of influence on a project's outcome. Proven to deliver cost efficiencies, digital joint integrity avoids process leaks that threaten employees, installations and the environment.

Our flange management software uses technology will issue information to the right person, in an understandable format, at the right time. MODS Connect Joint Integrity system facilitates decision making to ensure that the right decisions are being made to mitigate risk.

Leak-free Start-ups

 

Implementing the optimal digital strategy to eliminate leaking joints as part of a maintenance program mitigates unacceptable risk. Through new technology and processes offered by our flange management software, a 'leak-free start-up' will avoid any delays or rework. Achieving a leak-free start-up with MODS Connect Joint Integrity software is key to reducing costs and achieving scheduled or early demobilization of the workforce.

MODS Connect Joint Integrity allows you to be commercially competitive. Plant owners can apply contract penalties to EPC contractors for the late handover of a project. These delays are often caused by rework and recertification resulting from leaks found during start-up. Our flange management software ensures that EPC contractors and construction sub-contractors have the necessary expertise, materials, and planning in place to carry out bolting work for a safe, leak-free start-up.

Thousands of Reasons to Digitalize Your Joint Management Process

 

In an average-sized petrochemical facility, there can be upwards of approximately 25,000 to 50,000 bolted flange joints.  That's 50,000 potential causes for a major catastrophe if not managed correctly. MODS Connect Joint Integrity is the digital option to provide assistance with this mammoth task, making historical systems and paper-based processes senseless.

MODS Main Logo
"Unfortunately, poorly executed joint integrity management has been the reason for significant past incidents causing millions of dollars' worth of damage and unacceptable fatalities. However, with the knowledge of the substantial risk, companies continue to conduct work without a truly accountable system related to bolted joints. Leaks from incorrectly assembled bolted joints during the construction phase and poorly pre-assembled components, are entirely avoidable if you digitize your systems allowing for accountability and real-time progress status updates.”

We would love to talk to you about our

digital joint integrity solution

 
 
MODS offers a Joint Integrity solution which is part of the MODS Connect suite. MODS Connect delivers real value on your projects and helps realize the cost-saving changes vital to remaining economically viable. The exponential cost of a major safety incident compared to putting an effective joint integrity solution in place is not comparable. At best, if the leak does not cause a major incident, the rework may cost several times more than the amount to do the initial work correctly.
